Description

Campsite in Etosha National Park with access to pool, restaurant, shop and park office. Campsites are on gravel with private braai, water and power. Toilet and shower block was nice with hot water, and there is also a place to do dishes and laundry. The best thing about Okaukuejo is the water hole that is flood lit at night and you see rhinos. We also stopped at the water hole at lunch and there were the most animals we have ever seen at a water hole. The campsite can get fully booked even outside holiday season.

Presently, there is not a lot to complain about here as we camp for 4 days. There is hot water (quite often), toilet paper, clean ablutions. We can also connect to MTC which means internet access from our camp. Would happily stay here again.

If you need a break from camping then the Bush Chalets are a perfectly pleasant stay. Very clean, en-suite twin room with fridge, electric kettle and braai. Very short walk to the waterhole.
NAD1663 pppn, includes breakfast. Incredible discounts if you qualify under SADC!

Report Check-In

A great and recommendable campsite. Nice atmosphere, great pool and restaurant. Well maintained camp. Ablutions are clean. Okaukuejo is the best of all the campsites in Etosha.

Report Check-In

Resort has all the amenities you can think of. Can get busy and cramped, so we stayed at the far end against the fence, although this is very far from the ablutions. Electricity and waterpoints available almost everywhere. Lots of animals pass by the fence on their way to the waterhole. Ablutions clean and neat…although nit enough showers for the size of the camp. Shop is EXTREMELY expensive (i.e. ND62 for a bag of firewood with about 6 pieces of wood). Pool area was nice! We paid ND400 for the campsite (max. 4 people) on a current SADC special.

Report Check-In

We were early and could select a spot close to the fence. Many animals passed on their way to the waterhole. At night there were some rhinos at the waterhole. We could hear lions at night.
It wasn't busy.

camping: N$356 pppn
Our kids were free, but that was luck when we checked in at this campsite. They did not offer this at Numatoni.

Report Check-In

Came in on a Sunday without pre-booking. This was not a problem at all. I'd guess more than half of the campsites were empty. They have a waterhole that is accessible 24/7. I could see a giraffe there at night. 1p 1car w/ rooftop tent costed more than 400$. Rather expensive!

Report Check-In

It's ok campsite. Facilities are quite good but it's busy as it is the main one. There is fuel station, and the curio shop has some basics along with beer and some meat.
Hot water.
Waterhole is good.
Price 362 pp/pn as of 1/11/2021

Report Check-In

Nice big campsite with many outward facing sites, each with braai area, power and taps close by. only one ablution block which is not centrally located so can be very far to some campsites. ablution block very new and clean.
Can be very busy compared to the other Camps in the Park due to proximity to Windhoek.
Paid $400 for the campsite per night (4 pax)

Report Check-In

Now has 3G MTN access.
It’s 400nad per site, for up to 4 people, then 75 for each extra person.
So if your like me, 1 person, it’s 400nad, even more expensive than before carona!

Special NAD 100 per person. Nice waterhole, we saw many elephants, special sunset

Report Check-In

In 3.5 months of staying in Etosha during carona lockdown I stayed here only 2 nights. Says it all really. Noisy being the closest to Windhoek for weekend trips etc and poor staff habits (loud music coming from staff quarters etc).

Report Check-In

We stayed at covid-19 special 100 NAD pppn. Very commercial campsite, super popular with family especially over weekends (can get very noisy with no privacy). Taps are only available at some sights. Waterhole is a definite advantage here, we saw plenty of animals, lions stalking rhinos at night, herd of elephants in the afternoon etc. Ablutions upgraded, clean but untidy.

Report Check-In

The water hole is the highlight here for sure. We stayed two nights. Not much shade and no water at our site, but we saw many rhinos and a lion and lioness walk up to the water hole after dark. Ablutions were fine and a separate area for dishes and laundry was helpful. Our kids also loved the pools. WiFi was down and unavailable.

Report Check-In

Large sites with electricity. Poor shade. Bathrooms OK. Waterhole nearby but we did not see any animals there.

Report Check-In

Not much privacy as the camping sites are quite close together. But each site has a braai and electricity, most share a tap. The ablutions were okay, a bit rundown.
Highlights were the pool to cool down after a hot day and the waterhole where we saw rhinos and many other animals. And the possibility to get up and be in the park from sunrise!

Report Check-In

Just another NWR campsite, too much money (700 N$ for two persons) for what they offer. The ablution blocks are a bit run down, and due to the amount of people they host, don’t expect hot water in the morning. The plus is of course the location in the park and the early departure possibilities to see some wildlife in Etosha. There is also a nice waterhole, which is lit, and a good place to spot some animals who come over for a sip of water.

Report Check-In

We first went to Halali, which was fully booked. Then came here, also fully booked.
We guessed that there would be no shows and cancellations, so we agreed with the lady at the counter that we could ask again at 18hrs (sundown being at 18.30, being half June). If there would still be no place for us, we would have some time left to leave the park.
At 18.15 the lady confirmed that there was a spot for us. Actually, walking around the campsite at night, we found about 10 empty spots.
So it's worth to stay late and ask for cancellations.

Report Check-In

We did not stay since we had to book months in advance but we went to see their waterhole and the Onguma campsite outside of the east entrance were we stayed last night seems better. No animals at the water hole at 5pm but people were waiting for it. Apparently great to see rhinos at night.

Report Check-In

The ladies at reception are not friendly and not very helpful. Campsite was allegedly full when we showed up for the next two nights. Book ahead. Although it looked like there was plenty of space available.

Report Check-In

We wanted to stay here, but we left again since there was no shade at the campsite, the swimmingpool was still broken (for about two months already) and the people of this place don’t know the word Hospitality. We have seen some animals at the waterhole, but also many other tourists at this crowded place.

Report Check-In

Stayed two nights because off the waterhole, ablutions need some TLC, swimmingpool still out off use! NO schade on the campspots so very hot in wet season.

Report Check-In

What an amazing waterhole especially in the evening. 10 giraffes at a time, 3 rhinos, jackals and lions.
The Campground itself is not very nice but we stayed at the waterhole almost the whole time ;) A lot of benches around where everyone finds a place to sit.
Even during the day there were always animals. Amazing!
We‘ve seen also lions in the surrounding and incredibe many animals especially at the waterhole Salvadora. Hundreds of zebras, gnus and springboks.

Report Check-In

Campsite is very busy, there is a lot of people some big groups pretty loud at night so there is no privacy. In the reception we were told that there is no place to stay for us and we have to go to Halali campsite. We decided to stay and check if maybe someone couldn’t make it to Etosha that day and there will be free space- and indeed there was! Ablutions ok but limited, camping spots with braai, table and seats. Waterhole is beautiful with all the animals coming in the evening and morning to drink (giraffes, rhino, jackal, springboks). It’s worth to stay here to have 24h valid entrance to National Park.

Report Check-In

We did not stay here but visited the waterhole, which was awesome especially during sunset time. The waterhole is positioned so the sunsets right behind it which is amazing to watch with the animals. In only a few minutes we saw an elephant and giraffes. The next morning we heard people say that two male lions were there!!!

Best waterhole out of Halali and Nanutoni.

NWR run so don’t expect smiles as it seems but shop, pool, wifi vouchers etc is available for the extreme fee of N$340 per person just to camp but its in Etosha so who is complaining!

Report Check-In

Huge, sandy NWR- camp with no privacy and way too expensive! No animals at the waterhole when we were there, although there should be a rhino coming almost every night. Campsite was very crowded and loud. Price was 620 N$ for 2 people

Report Check-In

Great waterhole, campsite as usual in nwr-camps. Like all other nwr-camps ways too expensive ( price til 9/217 see namutoni- camp). Even wifi will be charged additionally!

Nice place to visit. Two jackels running around the site. N$550,- for two adults.

Report Check-In

Very commercial and quite expensive. Buffet dinner is 230pp... Breakfast is about 150pp. The waterhole is great at night, however if you're on a budget I'd be staying at Onguma on the east side of the park.

Report Check-In

Very dusty, sandy campsite. Not the most beautiful. But there is a really nice waterhole that gets loads of action. Rhino, elephant, lions, giraffes, and jackals! Campsites offer braai area, electric, and water. N$246 pppn for camping, N$10 vehicle fee per day. N$60 for SADC and N$90 for foreigners park fee per day. Park fees only purchased here or at Namutoni campsite

Large stoney, dusty field with some trees.; little shadow. Ablutions be renovated/rebuilt. Waterhole nearby.

Has the best waterhole in Etosha. We shared a spot with South African guest as the campsite was fully booked even outside holiday season. So if you want to stay here you must book in advance. 462 NAD per night for 2 persons and a car incl. electricity.

Great swimming pool, best campsite waterhole.
